Unique for Parents in Noe Tonight

Hi there,

I'm looking for someplace for six tonight in Noe Valley. It should be moderately priced and not too hard to get a table without reservations. I've recently been to Le Zinc twice -- and, by way of a review, was quite pleased with the food quality and the service -- so we're looking for something new in the neighborhood.

Also, open to surrounding neighborhoods.

  1. Have you tried Firefly or Bacco?

    1. If I lived in Noe, at eat at Incanto twice a month. Fantastic food that is very interesting, moderate prices, easy to get a table at the last minute.

      1. There's a special dinner at La Ciccia tonight, but it might be sold out:

          I think it might be sold out, but in any event, I wouldn't think of ever going to La Ciccia with a group of six without a reservation (per OP's request), special dinner or not. Very unlikely that a group that size could be seated without a reservation (it is very small, and I have seen folks turned away every time I've been there, and every table taken, whether weeknight or no.)

            Ah, right you are, I forgot how tight the space is there.

        2. As for surrounding neighborhood, try Blue Plate at about 30th & Mission.

          1. How about Fresca on 24th? Shouldn't be a problem with reservations. Further up the street is Lupa where I've always had luck with walk-ins. Next door is Kookiez (sp?) though I have to admit to being underwhelmed on my last visit.

            As it's Monday be sure to phone ahead - some in the 'hood are closed on this day.
